{Paper Smooches VIDEO} Lovely Thoughts + SquirrelFest Winner

I'm sharing a card that uses one of the newest Paper Smooches stamp sets called Lovely Thoughts. I combined it with the Roses Dies. While the Roses Dies are not a match to the Lovely Thoughts stamp set, they complement each other and can be used together in so many ways.

After three-step stamping the roses, I used the much-loved Stitched Dies to die cut the stems. Then I used the small leaf die from the Roses Dies with a similar one from the Flowers Dies. I stacked a vellum layer over top of the glimmer layer for a light and pretty effect.

The Lovely Thoughts stamp set and Rose Dies will be available for purchase at midnight Eastern Time tonight in the Paper Smooches Store, and at participating retailers on December 1st or shortly thereafter.

I used to select the category and that was the challenge portion of the festivities. From there, I used again to select from the challenge participants and the lucky winner of Chilly Chums and I Blank You is Samantha Mann! Congratulations, Samantha! Please contact me with your mailing address and I'll ship those Paper Smooches stamps out to you right away.

Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by during my month-long SquirrelFest Challenge and Giveaway!
